The restaurant is famous that it always have long queue. I went there after 9pm but still had to queue up for over 30 mins in order to get a seat. In addition to the ramen, the dumplings (Yakigyouza) are worthy for trying.

Simply perfect ramen! The pork slice topping the ramen was melt in your mouth delicious, the broth was sublime. Enjoyed a side of gyoza too. Worth the typical wait to get in this very small place near Ikebukuro Station. If you love ramen, you'll want to include this on your itinerary.
